Information from Carothers family website on John Carothers, son of Unknown Carothers DNA research:

John Carothers,

1725 - 1783

John was one of five brothers and two sisters, all but one of whom emigrated to America about 1740. John himself emigrated by way of Northern Ireland in 1745. He was born in Dumfries, but died in Cumberland Cty., Pennsylvania, where he is buried near Silver Springs Presbyterian Church. He was a veteran of Pontiac's Rebellion, and was a Mason. His father is thought to have been Robert Carothers. After he died, his wife, the former Sarah Neely, moved to Mecklenburg Cty., North Carolina, along with three of their sons. John's twin brother Hugh had already settled in that area.
